"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging freedom of speech, of the press, or the right of the people peacefully to assemble and to petition the government for the redress of grievances." This is the First Amendment – possibly the most powerful words in American history because it guarantees American citizens their natural rights under the supreme law of the land. The First Amendment gives American citizens the freedom of religion, peaceful assembly, speech and press. With this simple law, people can speak their innermost thoughts without fear of government intervention. But this amendment raises an important and troubling issue. What if this glorious right causes other people fear or shame? Throughout the years, the Supreme Court has restricted certain kinds of speech to protect the American citizens. One kind of restricted speech is libel, which is a written lie. In a case of Sullivan vs. the New York Times, the result of the case established that people who are in the public eye need to live a higher standard of life and only if they could prove that the article written about them is a lie could something be done. Another kind of restricted speech is treason. Treason is the act of aiding an enemy of the United States in the time of war. This is forbidden and the Constitution gives Congress the right to punish people who take part in treason. Congress has also passed laws restricting speech that criticizes the government. Sedition, which is words, and language that encourage people to rebel against the government, is also prohibited. Another kind of speech that is restricted is any speech that would promote a clear and present danger. Congress has passed laws against any kind of language that can prevent...

In the developed world the right of free speech should be imperative, however, it is a myth. The Macquarie dictionary defines free speech as follows 'the right to voice one's opinions in public'. Also, worldwide organisations like the United Nations in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (article, 19), acknowledged, that everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers. (Newman 11: 1997) In support to this, I will examine the extent to which the developed countries - through political devices - are restricting the notion of free speech. The circumstances under which free speech is restricted in the developed countries, will also be examined. The objective of this essay is to examine the recent problem that the world is facing - terrorism and its war - and the restriction of the free flow of information in that matter, and consequently of free speech and opinions amongst the media as well as the people of the 'free' world. Historically, the most lasting argument for free speech came from the English philosophers John Stuart Mill and John Locke. Mill argued that open discussion was required for the discovery of truth. John Locke's arguments in favour of freedom of thought and religious toleration have been co-opted in support of civil rights generally, as have the seventeenth-century political tracts of Benedict Spinoza. The scope of freedom advocated by Spinoza was: 'That in a free state everyone may think what he pleases, and say what he thinks'. (Newman: 1: 1997) However, the people of the past and their words of wisdom are not touching in anyway the leaders of the present, to implement an acceptable policy of freedom of...

Free speech and the abuses that surround it are like wild horses that need to be broken and tamed. The laws that were created to protect free speech were made long ago and in a much different spirit. The days of the American Revolution were filled with political oppression, enforced by British rule. Speaking out against such obvious tyranny meant being crushed under the boot of colonial governors. Free speech was designed to combat these infractions against proper civil liberties. The first amendment provided for free speech to be constructive. In today's society, free speech is a shield for protecting hatred and conspiracies. The common reply of many of today's hate mongers is "It's a free country!" There must be a line that cannot be crossed. When there are no safeguards against such things, we encourage hate to fester within our society and from outside as well. The results, costs, and consequences of the unchecked reign of free speech are terribly high. Evidence of this comes from the terrible tragedies that took place in New York City and Washington D.C. on September 11th, 2001. Terrorist forces, both domestic and foreign, flood our country with their messages of hate. Klu Klux Klan to Al Qaeda. From America's heartland to the lands of the Middle East changes must be made. Terrorists, again domestic and foreign, use our internet and public arenas to communicate and proliferate. On any given day there are hundreds of questionable chat rooms at such a website as http://chat.yahoo.com or using a simple program called mIRC. Many of these rooms are created with the expressed purpose of plotting against the United States and its people. Our public facilities must be available for any Klan or other group rally that agrees to be "peaceful." More often than not, these meetings are...

What you have just seen is a clip from "BLT: Genesis", which is a documentary on the film "Better Luck Tomorrow". After viewing this clip, let me ask you something... what comes to mind when you think of Asians in movies? After reading the results from a survey I conducted, many think of martial artists, exotic women, delivery boys, computer science geeks, nail parlors, laundry mats, and broken English. Director Justin Lin's new movie, "Better Luck Tomorrow", shatters these misconceptions and is on the verge of making history. Today, I am going to attempt to persuade you into viewing and supporting the film "Better Luck Tomorrow". I feel that I am a credible source because I recently attended a MAASU (Midwest Asian American Student Union) conference in which one of the actors, Roger Fan, came to speak to us. He showed us "BLT: Genesis" and spoke about the film. The audience, including myself, attained further information through the MAASU brochure and the "Better Luck Tomorrow" website. I will speak about three aspects of the movie: How BLT differs from other films, obstacles it has had to overcome, and reasons to why you should see and support the film. BLT differs from other films in many ways. First off, it's a predominantly all Asian American cast. Rebecca Louie, author of "Hoping for a little bit of 'Luck', found that according the 2000 census, Asian Americans make up 4.2% of the U.S. population, but a Screen Actors Guild study from the same year also indicated that only 1.7% of all lead roles cast went to Asian/Pacific Islanders. Now, you may have seen films that show Asians or Asian Americans starring as the main characters, but another main difference between BLT and other films is that the main characters do not play stereotypical roles. Parry...

Most people find actions speak louder the words, but do they really? In William Shakespeare's Julius Caesar Antony's words spoke louder then any of his actions. When he spoke at Caesar's funeral, he was able to use his emotions and beliefs to his advantage. The major theme of his speech was Brutus and Cassius. Antony wanted the crowd of Romans to know their intentions of killing Caesar. He stressed how unhonorable Brutus was in his intentions of killing Caesar. Due to Antony's persuasive speech, he was able to cause the destruction of Brutus and Cassius. By the end of Brutus's speech at Caesar's funeral, he had the crowds support. They were cheering along with him and truly felt his side. No one would have thought they would change their opinions until Antony took the podium. He stated right from the start: I come to bury Caesar, not to praise him (3.2.81). As he began talking about how honorable Brutus is, no reader would have seen this change of heart coming. He stressed Brutus being an honorable man, in a way for the crowd to see he wasn't. By using this form of reverse psychology he was able to get the crowd to really see how unhonorable Brutus was to Caesar. This led the crowd to turn against Brutus, Cassius and their partners in crime. As soon as the crowd finished listening to Antony's speech, they were enraged with the conspirators. Brutus and Cassius fled from Rome in order to protect themselves. In hiding, they camped out and their friendship slowly began to go downhill. A fight broke out between them that really tested their friendship. Here Brutus realized Cassius true intentions: The name of Cassius honors this corruption. (4.3.16). Their fight went on and included personal and political insults against...

Iago, one of the main characters in William Shakespeare?s Othello, is always viewed by others as ?honest Iago, a supposedly honorable, reliable individual. However, in his goal to get revenge on those who he believes have wrongfully taken his position, or the woman he desires, he does not hesitate to abuse this trust to his advantage. In the play, Iago manipulates three minor characters in differing ways for his own purposes, but each one reacts differently to his trickery, and thus each have a different outcome. Iago first incites Desdemona?s father, Barbantio, to hate Othello and destroy his secret marriage to Desdemona, but the start of his plan to slowly ruin Othello is not so successful. For example, after the crafty Iago and Roderigo stir up trouble at Barbantio?s house with his speech, the father angrily accuses Othello of putting his daughter under a spell and performing witchcraft to make her wed him(I.ii.63-83). The crafty and antagonizing words Iago uses brings direct shame to Brobantio?s family name, and this causes him to turn his wrath against Othello even thought he knows Iago is a rouge who is not totally trustworthy. He uses the power of his words to verbally stir up emotions and turn them into violent reaction, merely by the strength of his persuasive speech. In addition, however, after Othello explains to the Duke how Barbantio always thought of him as loyal and trustworthy, and Desdemona admits that she is genuinely in love with him by her own free will, her father reluctantly acknowledges their marriage(I.ii.96-108). Iago?s initial plan to first turn Barbantio against Othello in his master plan is not fool proof, as Barbantio realizes his foolishness and comes to his senses after listening to Othello?s sound reason. He may be skillful when it comes to using his words...

Speeches are written to amuse and persuade the audience and eventually lead them to agree with the speaker's views. Pericles is an example of an orator, who spoke about his funeral oration. An oration is a persuasive speech intended to inspire and incite people to action. It is often called the art of persuasion. Carefully planned, an oration has certain recognizable parts such as the opening, the narration of facts, the definition of terms to be explained, the intention, evidence addressing the arguments for or against the proposition, a contradiction of the opposing arguments, and the conclusion summarizing the arguments. In order for Pericles to go about these parts, he must use the three rhetorical devices: pathos, ethos, and logos to help the audience support his views more easily. Rhetorical devices are the art of oratory, speaking, or writing effectively. The first type of rhetorical device in which Pericles uses is pathos. Pathos persuades the listeners with the orator's emotions and feelings about the social issue. Pericles uses pathos in both the opening and closing scene. Pericles begins his speech by saying the total opposite of what the audience expects. He allows the audience to know how he feels about his glory of being an Athenian. For example, Pericles says "I will speak first of our ancestors, for it is right and seemly that now, when we are lamenting the dead, a tribute should be paid to their memory" (Thucydides 374) The closing scene summarizes the arguments and stirs up the audience. He mentions glory in a woman, which shows his personal feelings to persuade the audience one last time. The second type of rhetorical device that Pericles uses is ethos. Ethos is a bit different because it discusses the morals and issues that the Athenians came across. Pericles uses ethos in...

When you hear the name Martin Luther King Jr., the first thing that comes to mind is probably racism against African Americans. He is famous for his wisdom and persuasive speeches against segregation of African Americans. This statement holds strongly true because today diverse races are integrated all over the united states. For what ever reason, Martin has been an inspiration to many African Americans. He accomplished his success mostly through speeches, but also through his written essays. Although, his speeches were intense and filled with much persuasion, Martin had a way with words when he wrote too. This is displayed in professional fashion in the "Letter From Birmingham Jail." Martin displayed a circus of statements in response to the Clergymen in the "Letter From Birmingham Jail." He did this by analyzing their statements and responding with his own in an argumentative manner. He demonstrated this through persuasive statements, answering quotes from the community, and used a past leader as an example. Through this letter, Martin proved he could hold his ground in the line of fire. The question is, did it affect the peoples' outlook on racism? Martin Luther King had a way with words. He simply expressed himself in a manner that the people could understand. One way this was proposed, he used persuasive wording in order to demonstrate his particular feeling of that certain topic. For example, Martin argued that parading without a permit is not unjust. This is said because there is nothing wrong with having a parade without a permit, but as soon as a demonstration against segregation occurred it became a crime. Martin claimed that this denied the First- Amendment privilege of peaceful assembly and protest. Martin said, "in no sense do I advocate evading or defying the law, as would the rabid segregationist" (335)....

After the recent terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, the United States government has been in a difficult position of relaying information to the United States citizens to ensure their security and attempting to maintain in good relationships with other nations. In the months preceding Colin Powell's February 5, 2003 address to the United Nations the communications between the United States, its citizens, and other nations had become even more essential due to the ongoing war on terrorism and the threat of war in Iraq became increasingly probable. Although war was a possible solution to the problem with Iraq (What problem? State the problem), it was not a unanimously agreed upon position either in or outside of the United States. In fact, there was very strong opposition to the proposition among both the citizens and the officials of both the U.S. and other countries. As Colin Powell, a well-respected former soldier and general of the U.S. army and the current Secretary of State, spoke to the United Nations Security Council on February 5, 2003, he could not forget the emotion that was felt on that dreadful day in September, nor could he forget that the United States was not alone in their desire to disarm Iraq; rather, it was a situation that involved all the countries of the United Nations although no other country was so fiercely impacted as the United States by the al-Qaida terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center. In order to make an effective case for war against Iraq, Powell uses the structure of his speech to provide facts and to present a line of reasoning that the council and citizens can follow while also appealing to the emotional level of his audiences. The language he chose to frame this speech also had considerable impact on the message he wanted to convey to the United Nations. By using various...
